A few to share...
« on: July 02, 2009, 09:04 PM »
None of these trees are really that great but I sure enjoy playing with them.  I hope that if I can keep them alive for 10 or so years they might make decent trees.

Pic 1 - Dwarf Piceas/Spruce - container is about 2" sq and about 1.5" tall
Pic 2 - Dwarf Piceas/Spruce - 5" tall
Pic 3 - Privet - 5"
Pic 4 - Dwarf Golden Hinoki - 5" tall

I think they're all great John. My favorite is the Hinoki, but not something I can grow in south Texas. Thanks for showing them. Larry

Give us some details about these trees.  I can surmise you picked at least one up from Suthin.  Did you create these from nursery stock?  I suspect some of these are in your turface bed?  How often do you have to water?

leaving for vacation this morning guys but I promise more info when I get back....but for now I do grow them in a bed of turface.  Other than the pine...all the other conifers were started from nursery stock...iseli nursery I am pretty sure.  They are all on their own root.  The Elm and the Privet were started by Martin Sweeney.

I really like the 2nd spruce in the first post and the jwp.
I think you have a good eye for picking out pots too. Where did you get the spruces?

Thanks Shimsuki...  The Spruce came from a local landscape nursery.  But, they were grown and sold from Iseli Nursery out west.

I believe that is a dwarf cultivar named Elf...I also have one that is still a dwarf but a little larger called Humpty Dumpty.
Thanks for the comments folks.
